Submission + - Facebook blocks add-on because it's too good at cleaning up Facebook (facebook.com)

the saltydog writes: A developer came up with a browser add-on to help customize the view on Facebook; first, they made him change the name — then, they blocked links to his site (as being "spammy" — which is an utter joke, as the add-on REMOVES all the spam from Facebook)... Now, they're arbitrarily removing photos in the albums on his page. In case you don't believe it, try sending any of your FB friends a link to fbpurity.com — it will not work.

It's our data, and our machines — shouldn't we be able to arrange things the way WE want to see them? Fuck Facebook.
(From a happy user of the add-on.)
